Meditation is a term that refers both to a state of consciousness in which a practitioner watches oneself, as well as a
method for achieving such a state. As a method, meditation means quieting the mind in order to more clearly see one’
s self. Ultimately meditation is simply self-watching from a different aspect of consciousness—a way of becoming
selfless.

What is Meditation?
Meditation is a term that refers both to a state of consciousness in which a
practitioner watches oneself, as well as a method for achieving such a state.
As a method, meditation means quieting the mind in order to more clearly see
one’s self. Ultimately meditation is simply self-watching from a different aspect
of consciousness—a way of becoming selfless.

The term meditation refers to a broad variety of practices that includes
techniques designed to promote relaxation, build internal energy or life force
"Chi" (qi, ki, prana, etc.) and develop compassion, love, patience, generosity
and forgiveness.

A particularly ambitious form of meditation aims at effortlessly sustained
single-pointed concentration, meant to enable its practitioner to enjoy an
indestructible sense of well-being while engaging in any life activity.

The word meditation carries different meanings in different contexts. Meditation
has been practiced since ancient times as a component of numerous religious
traditions and beliefs. Meditation often involves an internal effort to self-regulate
the mind in some way. Meditation is often used to clear the mind and ease
many health concerns, such as high blood pressure, depression, and anxiety.
It may be done sitting, standing, lying or in an active way - for instance,
Buddhist monks involve awareness in their day-to-day activities as a form of
mind-training. Tai Chi and Qigong practice are active forms of meditation.

Prayer beads or other ritual objects are commonly used during meditation in
order to keep track of or remind the practitioner about some aspect of that
training.
